Update on the VUSA 24 Hour Cycle Challenge

Join us in just over a week for the thrilling 24-Hour Cycle Challenge brought to you by Investec!

Mark your calendars and get ready for an event that promises excitement, inspiration, and community spirit. The highly anticipated 24-Hour Cycle Challenge is just over a week away, and this year, we have a truly exceptional guest: Grant Lottering. Brace yourself as Grant embarks on an incredible journey, attempting to cycle the entire 24 hours solo!

Curious to know more about Grant's remarkable story? Take a moment to watch this inspiring clip. Grant's determination and resilience are sure to leave you awe-inspired. Don't miss the chance to show your support! Swing by Grant's bike. Your presence and encouragement will be a welcome distraction as he tackles this formidable challenge.

The event will unfold at the iconic Piley Rees, creating an atmosphere brimming with energy. Even if you're not participating in the cycling, we invite you to bring along your family and friends. 

We have a great line-up which includes Interviews with Matthew Pearce (1987G), Grant Lottering, Tank Lanning (1989S), magic by Olwethu Dyantyi, our beloved Cape Town Comedian Kurt Schoonraad, live entertainment from the Bishops Music Department, Me and Mr Green, DJ Ross and a silent disco. VUSA Coach and personal trainer, Monwabisi Tshotwana will offer a sunrise stretch class and we will have entertainment for the children so there is something for everyone. Our dedicated teams have already kicked off their fundraising efforts, and you can contribute too. Several ODs are participating in this event - The OD Lengends, The Rad Dads, Bishops Rugby Supporters Club (to name a few). A few of the boys have also set up interhouse teams. Thus far we have a team from Kidd House, School House White House. Please support these teams, it's a great cause.

The 24-Hour Cycle Challenge is more than an event; it's a celebration of community, endurance, shared experiences, courage and togetherness. See you there!
